Award and a Meme

Weeks ago my dear friend Dysfunctional Mom gave me this adorable award. Can't you smell the puppy breath?? Thank you so much, you are very kind and sweet. If you have never visited Dysfunctional Mom do so now...you will not be disappointed.



Around the same time I was tagged by Storyteller....here it is:

"I’ve lost several friends through Breast Cancer. We can only hope that there will always be funds enough to keep the research going. Some illnesses can never be cured, but there’s been so much progress in Cancer Research that many people have been saved.One of the most important things is Early Detection. Read more about that here.


* One in eight women or 12.6% of all women will get breast cancer in her lifetime.
* Breast cancer risk increases with age and every woman is at risk.
* Every 13 minutes a woman dies of breast cancer.
* Seventy-seven percent of women with breast cancer are over 50.
* Breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in women between the ages of 15 and 54, and the second cause of cancer death in women 55 to 74.
* Risks for breast cancer include a family history, atypical hyperplasia, early menstruation (before age 12), late menopause (after age 55), current use or use in the last ten years of oral contraceptives, and daily consumption of alcohol.
* Early detection of breast cancer, through monthly breast self-exam and particularly yearly mammography after age 40, offers the best chance for survival."

Alison that is the cutest award. I will do the meme it might not be until the weekend. Breast cancer awareness is always something that needs highlighting.

I PROMISE to follow the rules and post this...but, it will be several days before I can get to it. Won't go into my "list of things to do" BUT, it's a long one and I have company coming.
Thank you, my dear friend.

Congratulations on your well deserved award and thanks for participating in the Pink Sisterhood. It took ME several weeks to get around to doing it as well ... but in a way that's a good thing because it keeps the information and 'cause' in our minds ... so don't worry about being 'late' to share. Any time is a good time to raise awareness. Thanks for the link to Dysfunctional Mom. I'll be sure to check out her blog as time permits.
Hugs and blessings,
